Moebius Eyelet Cowl - Pattern Now Available.

These are various photographs of the moebius cowl I designed.
This cowl does match the
Ruffled Cuff Eyelet Fingerless Gloves that I designed.
The first two photos are knit with Berroco's Ultra Alpaca Fine.

The third photograph is knit with Classic Elite's Alpaca Sox.
The fourth photo is knit with Frog Tree's Pediboo.
All four are so different, and I like them all.
Hard to decide which I like the most.
Although it is hard not to say the number one is the Pediboo.

I have been struggling with local test knitters (not everybody wants to knit what I need a test knit on), so I turned to Ravelry for test knitters for this cowl pattern. I am very pleased how that went. I asked for four test knitters and gave them 2 weeks to finish the item. All 4 test knitters were totally completed and gave their feedback within 10 days

So now the pattern is available on Ravelry.
One of the local yarn stores has ordered 10 patterns,
with plans of teaching a January class using my pattern.

Oh, and the 2nd one was sold as soon as I finished it.
The last one was sold with the matching gloves.

Linda - I did not find a way to send you a note back. Hope you come back to see my answer.

It is available on Ravelry, by doing a search on Leedra under people or designers. If you are not a member, but knit it is well worth joining (it is free).

If you are not a Ravelry member and don't want to join I can send the pattern to your email. The price of the moebius pattern is $4.95. Do you use Paypal? If so, I can send you a bill in Paypal.

The pattern does not teach the moebius cast on, but links to the utube that does teach the moebius cast on. Several of my test knitters had never done the moebius cast on and did great with it.
